    It does. You get acetic acid by replacing two of ethanol's hydrogen molecules with oxygen

    There’s a chart in wild brews that details the amount of Oxygen that diffuses through
    various vessels. A 40L home-brew keg comes in at about the same as a 200L commercial HDPE
    fermenter and just...

    QUOTE=dwarven_stout;4179743] That's why I'm skeptical of your claim that (paraphrased) "wood is
    essential because bacteria won't grow without it". I never said bacteria wouldn’t grow without

    It doesn't make any more sense to say "stratum". Not to be overly pedantic, but you're talking
    about the bugs using the chips as some sort of habitat, not having them sedimentate out.
    Correct while ye...

    "a strata" is a breakfast food. Delicious, too. That should have been the singular "stratum",
    in the geologic sense. I'm in the middle of a Kölsh brew and not spending time proof-reading.
    The point is...

    First the function of the Oak is to provide a strata for the bacteria to grow on, not to impart
    any flavor so you definitely do not want a new barrel, but you definitely want Oak in your
    fermenter. Yo...

    PV =nRT It's not just a good idea it's the Law carbonate beer you need CO2 and pressure. Yeast
    + sugar in a capped bottle and CO2 from a tank into a sealed keg are the two most common ways
    to do it a...

    One other solution would be to go down to your LHBS and ask for a malt extract substitute for
    the Marris Otter. Don't get me wrong I love MO, and use it in all my Burton on Trent style
    brews, but I'm ...

    Decided to make my first Lambic; Google lead me to several solid threads here.

    Any draw backs?Since you asked:Trub and autolysing yeast can import flavors you probably don't
    want into your beer, and stirring them up increases that chance. Which is why you're better off
    racking t...
